OLYMPIA, WA, July 18, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Financial Advocates' advisor and partner in philanthropy, Julie Rothmeier, a retirement planning specialist and founder of Strategic Wealth Partners in Cloquet, Minnesota, has received Honorable Mention in the 13th Annual Invest in Others Awards for her philanthropic contributions to The Rotary Club of Cloquet.
Financial Advocates nominated Rothmeier for the 2019 Invest in Others Awards for her efforts spearheading the launch of two charitable initiatives benefiting children and veterans in Cloquet; the Literacy Program of Cloquet and the Rotary March for Veterans Celebration.
Rothmeier's vision for these programs and her volunteerism as a Rotarian have contributed significantly to the success of both programs. To date, the Literacy Program of Cloquet has distributed over 7,500 books to the kindergartners and third graders of Cloquet, and the Rotary March for Veterans Celebration has raised over $15,000 for Cloquet's local Department of Veterans Affairs, their local V.F.W., and 23rd Veteran.
"We have made it our priority to shine a spotlight on all the good work being done by the advisors who participate in our Partners in Philanthropy Program," said Angela Vlach, COO, and President of Financial Advocates. "We value Julie as a partner and have always admired her willingness to dedicate so much of her time for the benefit of others. We are thrilled to see her receive this honor."
The Rotary Club of Cloquet, Minnesota, will receive a $1,000 donation from Invest in Others in Rothmeier's honor.
